is the contributing environment that is lending itself. a lot of the police officers have to be at a certain rank and have to be kept on the contract as a source of the sort of securing full time to permanent status with protection. this is one of the conditions that actually makes it much easier on superiors and senior members of the security establishment to basically pressure them into taking questionable activities. if you don't pull the trigger then i will endure contract by the end of this year because you are in a contract you are basically not protected. i would -- you know, i would question the assumption that the securities sector reform is necessarily aimed at, you know, disempowering are dismantling the securities sector, and i would actually say that there are a lot of measures, a lot of proposals in the case of egypt that would strengthen the status of the living conditions and the working conditions of the egyptian police. >> we think that this idea of the reform versus strengthening. when we talk about strengthening, are we talking about more weapons, more capabilities that they c

and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for thome vote for scott brown and others. the problem with the republicans they're based, ideologically driven voters, tea party folks but part of the republican base is open for democrats then democratic base is voting for republicans, i believe. i'm sure we can chew this over. let me give you an example. let me give you an example. heidi hide camp -- hidecamp, terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney won north dakota by 20, 21 points. heidi was able to overcome that. it's true that she -- the president won north dakota slightly less then mid-romney won north dakota slightly less then the president won massachusetts. but i think the republican coalition includes kind of a soft, swing voters who is inclined to vote republican but more willing to vote for democrats. jim mathisson surviving in utah is amazing. amazing. john barrio in georgia, yes, the republicans candidate against him was horrendous. when the last time you heard a challenger refused to debate the incumbent?

and especially on the rich. the tax initiative passed in california. and this is clearly a different environment. the republicans like to say it's a status quo election. but there are huge shifts and even the house which remained republican, more democrats voted and the republicans maintained the house only because of restricting and jerry than dering. so i do think the white house has the upper hand. but president obama has to be willing to also go over the cliff if necessary and not allow -- he can't be the one who blinks first. >> rachel, listening to what eleanor is quoting bill crystal having said this morning on the talk shows, wouldn't it have been smarter for the republicans to get to that point a week ago if not sooner before the election? >> this is a real test for both john boehner and president obama. as any negotiation works, we see in the capitol, in this area, each side has to first mark their territory, go to their corners. and after each side has clearly established with their own position, then and only then can we start to see movement toward the middle. so the interesting thi

their positions as we go forward. but i do think there was a lot that changed tuesday and i think that environment is somewhat reflected in the statement that john boehner made yesterday afternoon and i was being told comments he had on a conference call with his membership about how they had to change the way they operate. but when you look at the fact that you had a very significant victory by the president who campaigned on the issue of fiscal responsibility and very specifically the issue that makes this lame duck problematic that makes next year problematic is there going to be a change in tax rates. and the president campaigned on that. the exit polls showed people by large majority favered that, 60% nationwide said that they favered an increase in taxes, some wanted it on everybody, most wanted it just on people over $250,000 a year. most democratic senate candidates campaigned on that. they won 25 of 33 open seats. 75% of the open seats. and so i think they are coming back with a lot of wind in their sales. unlike the last session of congress where the resur gent republican majority came b

programs and environments where military and civilian leaders get a chance to share information. one thing we intentionally do is 101. our military fellows actually explain the military to the nonmilitary fellows. our doctors do a healthcare 101. so they become the experts in their field and share with each other. which is really incredible. but the military civilian piece is something a lot of these leaders do not get exposed to. both the military leaders as well as the civilian so for a couple of days every year, we often go on an aircraft carrier and really understand what happens on an aircraft carrier. it is really an incredible environment of learning. >> bill: right. so now as i understand, unlike candace, do you have a job to go back to. >> i will continue my training. and i'm looking forward to finishing it. at the end of those two years really is -- at the end of my training, i make a decision on how to enter the practice of medicine and really, if i will have an opportunity to have a large component de

situations but also to look at the bigger public policy, that of the environment and that of climate change and global warming. we need to be cognizant of our stewardship over the -- our planet. we need to make certain that if these data that are compiled are telling us that there is increased prescription, for instance, over the catskills watershed, in my district, let's respond accordingly to sound public policy as it relates to our environment and our stewardship of the environment and let's be cognizant of the needs in response of this measure. you know, i'll just say this, and i know you want to add to this discussion here. i'll say this, in a time where government perhaps has been hit hard by critics out there suggesting there's no role for public sector here, we need to reduce government, i can tell you people addressing the war room, as they designated it, putting together all of the professionalism and academics and people who operate these programs and how well trained, watching that compilation, that collaborative effort of these profession alcs who are responding to public -- pr

, one that improves the environment, saves money in the long run. congress can begin on this now. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, congress can't ignore the near bankrupt flood insurance program. while we fix the short-term problems, however, let's make it more effective, efficient and actuarially sound so that it will spare lives, property and the federal treasury. overhauling the flood insurance program would solve the most immediate challenges caused by extreme weather events likely due to global warming. we may even be able to discuss climate change in a more thoughtful and rational way. based on work i've done in the past with congressman ryan and jeff flake, i know agriculture reform is a ripe opportunity. taxpayers cannot afford to lavish unnecessary subsidies on large agri business while harming the environment and shortchanging small farmers and ranchers. surely, tea party republicans and members of the progressive caucus can come together to improve nutrition, wildlife habitat, hunting and fishing while strengthening family farms. and since big bird dodged a bullet
